This and the previous NCAA statement make me feel a little better.

 

 

Stand corrected.

I'm sure they are doing everything not to ban specatators.  CBJ is privately owned and probably has one person making the decision as opposed to university academics and bureaucrats.

Welk, thank heavens!  One private autocrat surely trumps a team of trained medical scientists...and BUREAUCRATS!! 😱😳

From the New York Post:

"Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced Tuesday he is asking indoor sporting events take place without spectators “other than the athletes, parents, and others essential to the game.”

 

This came shortly after the Democratic presidential candidates canceled arean events.  Biden at a small senior center, and Sanders at Cleveland Browns Stadium... 😉

I hope they do not do this. I hate handouts. Feels unearned. 

 

14-4 overall in conference including 7-2 on the road ... what am I missing? CERTAINLY feels earned to me. Conference tourneys = money grab. Send Akron.

Me too, but I'd get over it once a well rested Zips team won an NCAA tournament game!

 

Two weeks without a game I'd think would hinder our chances of pulling off an upset as we'd be rusty.

Just reported on channel 3  by Jim Donovan. MAC is mulling over option to allow immediate family only! 3 relatives per player, no band, no cheerleaders! obviously no fans.  Uggh

Cowardice.  What a horrible decision.   Whoever wins can play in an empty arena somewhere else in the country if they are allowed to be on planes.  Absolute over-reaction.

Will the semifinals and final still be televised nationally??  Supposed to be on CBSSports (semis) and ESPNU (final), I think...

A friend and I were talking about getting lunch and beer somewhere to watch the game (since we can't go) .  Is a bar or restaurant going to have access to ESPN + ?

I'm on self quarantine until the 23rd. I'm not showing symptoms, but my company told everyone to work from home for the next two weeks and I just want a break from people. Get off my lawn
